The consultancy's female clients tend to be younger, between 30 and 50.For an annual fee of £9,000, Mac Lynn or one of her team of six employees meets with a new client to discuss what he or she is looking for in a partner before arranging 10 dates, or "introductions," over the course of 12 months."Having worked in psychology for so long I’m aware that what they say they’re looking for and what they’re really looking for are different," Mac Lynn said.
"But smaller firms, people working for hedge funds, for example, have less of a focus on meeting someone with a certain level of academics." Many insist that they only want to meet someone with an Oxbridge or Ivy League university degree."I meet a lot of very successful men who specifically don’t want to meet people in finance," Mac Lynn said."They spend so much of their time being logical and analytical that they're looking for someone in a creative industry like fashion or marketing to balance that out." Staff at big firms like KPMG, EY, and US banks like Goldman Sachs want a partner just as intelligent as them in an equally demanding line of work.Before becoming a professional matchmaker, Mac Lynn worked as a business psychologist at a recruitment consultancy, then began working as a consultant at the London-based dating agency Seventy Thirty in 2006. The company now employs seven core matchmakers, including Mac Lynn, with one senior team member heading up its Gay and Lesbian matchmaking service.The consultancy also employs dozens of matchmaking consultants internationally on a freelance basis.
